Champagne is the luxury drink par excellence! A bubbling treat that’s used the world over to make a show, toast births, celebrate romances and, if you’re feeling extravagant, drown sorrows. When attending a special event, you will usually hear the Holy Grail of phrases, “Let’s start with something fizzy!” Whether you beam or deflate at these very words, indulging in a stay within the place of origin of this fine grape makes for a picturesque stay indeed, as “world heritage status” vineyards roll over ashen hills. Plus, you will enjoy a guided tour and tipple at a Pommery Champagne house. After all, what else are you going to toast your decadent holiday with? Vintage? Too right!
Château de Barive is set in the beauty of the Champagne region. Step through the stately gates to find a stunning mansion-like house, surrounded by 500 hectares of wooded area. Inside, you’ll find an elegant restaurant, an indoor pool and spa area, along with 22 classically decorated guest rooms, free Wi-Fi in public areas and free self-parking. Additionally, a fitness centre, a bar, and a sauna are onsite. All this, just a 45 minute drive from the centre of Reims.
